Time for another "Artsy Photos" spotlight! Thanks again to my husband Michael, at Happenstance Photography. This week's cake photo choices are inspired by our recent trip to Stillwater, and all of the changing colors outside.
This cake was one of our rare non-fondant cakes. We created a special frosting to acheive the textured "stucco" effect, and airbrushed it twice - once in chocolate, once with a deep red - for a slight gradient effect.
The leaves were all made from gumpaste, allowed to dry, then individually airbrushed with several colors of red, orange, copper, and gold.
Definitely one of my favorite Fall-themed cakes ever.
